Find Lost Media that Was in Your iTunes Library

Sometimes people have trouble finding files in their iTunes library if the file hasn't been accessed for a long time. iOS users can search for the lost media by connecting their device with a desktop computer or laptop.

After connecting, when you start iTunes application, and type the name of the lost file in the search field, the search result displays all the files that have the searched characters in their names.

Once you find the lost media, it is recommended to save the file in a playlist or at some other location from where you can get access to it easily if you ever need the file again.

Here is how you can find the lost media in your iTunes library:

    ■Log on to your Windows PC.

    ■On the iTunes interface, click the Edit menu from the menu bar at the top-left corner
